This morning, the Ticketmaster website began selling Lady Gaga tickets again for the United States opening of the "Born This Way Ball" tour. Tickets were briefly unavailable for the past couple of days. However, this morning's chart, which shows ticket availability, reveals that there are many sections that have an unusually high amount of tickets available.
As you can see from the chart on the top of the page, dark blue represents high availability. The darker the blue, the more seats that are available. Perhaps this is the reason why several Tacoma radio stations have been giving away a lot of tickets this week.
Lady Gaga's "Born This Way Ball" tour has been having a lot of troubles lately. In South America, Lady Gaga's tour was the butt of jokes in the press, with some saying her show in Peru (which sold only 17,000 seats after ticket giveaways, buy-one-get-one-free deals, and reduced prices) was so empty it looked like there was a nuclear war. In Brazil, Lady Gaga allegedly went into poor areas to do "charity" work, but unleashed thousands of tickets.
Moving onto Russia, there were pictures taken during the show of Lady Gaga playing to hundreds of empty seats. However, some reports said that the empty seats were the result of many people leaving the show early. Billboard reported that Lady Gaga played 69 out of 69 sold out shows this year. However, the poorly sold Mexican and South American shows were mysteriously not reported to Billboard this year.
Despite the poor ticket sales, Mother Monster has been receiving great reviews for her performances. The good news is that fans can still buy tickets as Ticketmaster is showing many tickets left for just about every single date.
